Yoga Therapy for the Hands, Wrists and Forearms
We use our hands for almost everything we do throughout the day, from checking email to chopping vegetables for dinner. On top of this, if your work requires you to use your hands in repetitive motions, then the muscles and joints of the hands, wrists and forearms are particularly at risk for inflammation.
Practicing this therapeutic sequence of exercises increases strength and flexibility in the small muscles of the hands and fingers, where over 25% of our body’s bones are located, helping reduce inflammation, removing built-up stress and increasing range of motion.
Thank you, I just happened upon this - just what I needed.
Thank you! This was a great break for my hands during a marathon knitting session.
Thanks, I sure can use this exercise because I massage a lot of necks and shoulders.
Namaste. Thank you Erica for this therapeutic practice. I am a yoga teacher recovering from TFCC cartilage tear and this practice helped me relax and open up the muscles and tendons surrounding my wrist injury. I will be sure to check out more of your practices on this site! Namaste.
